Thank you. I will. What a bunch of hippie-dippy crap. Do I look like a lotus flower to you??? Way to turn me off. Geez. I'd have been more interested if he told me to go light a building on fire.I ignore the ‘listen to your body’ business.
Excellent point. And if I'm in the process of trying to stifle those urges, I am left with aching to death which is what? Depressing.. Really damned depressing.Doing that is what got me in trouble to begin with. My BODY? Wants to go-go-go. Bigger, faster, stronger, better, NOW. And again! Again! Again, now!.
Very interesting - a whole lot more interesting than folding myself in half and just beingIt’s a different kind of competition to charge myself with.
Thank you.How about meditation? It sounds like your a busy person so it might help. I've done some meditation before and loved it. We used to do full body scans and it was great.
There are walking meditations... that’s what those incrediably intricate knots on the floor of a lot of churches/monasteries are for, as an example. Tai-Chi, which has been mentioned before, is another moving-meditation. I used to meditate whilst drying my hair (as it took apx an hour at the length it was, after going to the gym, before bed)... and when doing long distance pool swimming ((I can’t count past 3 ;) If I’m doing more than 3 laps I zone the hell out / depend on someone sticking a sign down the end of the lane I’m in. Oh. Stop. Right. Blink blink. Cap off, cool water over scalp. Okay! I’m awake! What time is it? ... I can pay attention in the ocean, but not in forward, flip, back, flip, forward, flip, back, flip, forward, flip, back, flip.)) Similarly, when working on my breath control I’d just go “sit” on the bottom of the pool (or holding my nose in the bath) for 3 or 4 minutes, or swim for 2+. Barre exercises are another moving meditation, that combines exquisite awareness of form and position, in addition to slow & strength.Part of my aversion to "slowing down" is that people do a lot of sitting for that, as in meditation.
But I am REALLY GOOD at all or nothing thinking and I hate to throw away something I excel atAll or Nothing Thinking says full tilt boogie OR sit like a lump.
Choclate icecream RusselSue?
Cold-warm showers. It brings you to the baseline.:-)
